In 2022, we continued our virtual Hoover Book Club series. Highlighting the research of Hoover fellows, these in-depth, informed conversations pull back the curtain on policy development and execution. These talks feature discussions between issue experts and policy makers as they consider solutions to some of our most difficult problems. Included is a review of Hoover Institution fellows speaking in our nation's capitol and a list of the top op-eds and interviews.
